  • Create a new client and leave the email field empty.

  • Click "Save & Open"
  • At the client details page, Scroll down to "Login credentials/Login username. The default username is the client first name and last name. username can be changed as long it is unique across your business.

  • user_name_2
  • Business users can change an existing client login method at the "Login method" field (email or username).

Family members with a shared email address

FACTS Online allows sharing of email address across family groups. This feature is essential for digital signatures and eForms. Sharing email address is a combination of two client attributes: username and send email via.

Setup a spouse with a username and send email via

  • Login to FACTS Online as a business user
  • Create or open the primary client with an email address (add a client or search and select)
  • At the client details page, click "Add spouse"

  • user_name_3
  • Enter spouse name (leave email blank) and click "Save spouse."
